I Need My Space

                           The Beach
I am delighted and thrilled to be 'A Cut Above' 
at The Paper Players with this card-Thank you!
I was inspired by Three Challenges to make this Masculine card
I masked around the white card to emphasis the 'Space'
The sky has been done using Distress inks and blending
I stamped the clouds - Indigo Blu and embossed them in white
The sea has been water coloured using Distress Inks through a Zebra Stencil
The sand is modelling paste,coloured with acrylic paint and 
micro beads added to add texture and to look like sand
The Hut has been stamped - docrafts stamp and embossed in white
I rendered the hut using distress markers and watercolouring
The sentiment has been stamped using mini individual letters
The shells have been stamped and 
the starfish has been embossed in gold 
but you can't see this in the photo unfortunately
I popped on red line tape around the edge and embossed in gold
and finished off by blending distress inks around the edge

I have included the following photo to show why I had to start again!!
I did try to de-tack my masking tape before I used it 
but clearly not enough and it spoilt the edges as I peeled it off!
I used quite a few techniques on this card and really enjoyed Making it
What a lovely Mood board over at City Crafter Challenge
I saw the Beach Hut as 'The Man Shed' for The Male Room Challenge
All three of the challenges inspired me to make the card x

Wonderful combination of challenges! I really like the texture on the sand, the lovely colouring on the sky and sea, but the beach hut it just stunning! Sorry I'm so late commenting, thanks for playing along with The Male Room's Vacation/Beach challenge!

Thank you so much for your generous and very kind comments. Loved joining in the challenge and could see The Beach Hut being a Man's garden shed and him 'needing his space'. Thanks again x
